Northfleet Residents Make Spooky Snacks

Ghoulish goodies were on the menu for this week’s baking activity at Dene Holm Residential Care Home, as residents baked up a storm with some Halloween themed treats.

There were more treats than tricks on the cards this week when the keen bakers at our Northfleet residential care home added a spooky seasonal element to their baking activity, making and decorating pumpkin shaped gingerbread.

The residents had a fang-tastic time whipping up a batch of Halloween cookies, which they then decorated with icing, crafting faces, stripes and polka dots. Once they’d finished, they enjoyed sampling their sweet treats with a cup of tea.

Lea-Ann Shaw, Activity Coordinator at Dene Holm said: “We love our baking here at Dene Holm and we often like to try a seasonal approach, with autumn in full swing and Halloween just around the corner, we thought why not do that?

“Everyone had great fun baking and decorating the cookies and of course, trying them too. We’re all looking forward to enjoying some festive baking in the run up to Christmas!”

Baking is incredibly beneficial for older people, especially those living with dementia. Not only does it have a calming effect, reducing anxiety and depression, it’s also a sociable activity, which prompts memories and nostalgia.
